Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger
There may be no greater example of the phenomenon we're talking about here than the fourth film in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, which starred two future A-list actors and is demonstrative of the shrewd and cynical strategies of Hollywood.

The horror film genre is one that many people sidestep when picking out an option for film night, not simply out of fear; but often because of uninspired, predictable story-lines and limp performances. However, that isn’t to say that there aren’t still some great horror films out there. This piece, in particular, focuses on horror films which feature scenes of gambling: you may not love all of them, but they are the best on offer.
‘Arbat’ is local Thai for ‘violation’ or ‘offense’. The movie is the story of a young man forced into becoming a monk by his father. The novice monk goes on to develop a romantic relationship with a local village girl, leading to ghostly occurrences and strange happenings. The film features several scenes of gambling, drinking, violence – all the bells and whistles. However, its reference to Buddhism was deemed insulting

British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”
Alert readers will have noticed that one of these franchises is not like the others. While Star Wars and Harry Potter have raked in billions of dollars,
At four feet, four inches, Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl might not seem like a likely candidate for professional wrestling, but he’s made his mark in WWE wrestling with a Cruiserweight Champion title on Smackdown! (2007) and other physical feats on WWE Raw. This year he’s made his crossover into films with an appearance in Muppets Most Wanted, and now with the WWE / Lionsgate joint venture of the horror film Leprechaun: Origins, which hopes to reignite interest in the horror franchise, which starred Warwick Davis. A separate, unrelated entity that stands on its own, Origins purports to be a straight-up horror film, with full-tilt gore, violence, and action, courtesy of the evil Leprechaun, played by the one and only Hornswoggle.

You’ve probably not heard of Lipovsky either, but he appeared on the reality series On The Lot, in which aspiring filmmakers competed for a deal with DreamWorks. Does this mean that Spielberg has anything to do with the reboot? Nope. But it gives the guy a little bit of credibility.
Right. Lipovsky will direct the reboot of the 1993 classic (?) Leprechaun. The original starred Warwick Davis (who else?) as an evil little Irish caricature searching for his pot o’gold and … well, pretty much killing everyone in the process. The reboot will star WWE star Hornswoggle as the title character. It’s being produced, unsurprisingly, by WWE Studios and Lionsgate, so … yeah.
Lipovsky has been
According to The Wrap, Lionsgate and WWE Studios have set visual-effects veteran Zach Lipovsky to direct Leprechaun, the long-awaited reboot of the successful horror franchise that launched the career of Jennifer Aniston.
Lipovsky was discovered as a contestant on Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett's short-lived reality series "On the Lot," which saw 16 aspiring filmmakers compete for a development deal with DreamWorks.
The original Leprechaun, which featured comedic elements, followed an evil leprechaun searching for his pot of gold while avoiding four-leaf clovers. “The tone is going to be a little darker, a little more traditional horror than the Warwick Davis ones that people remember, trying to find
Look, don't go to a bar (or five). There you'll only find the heartbreak that comes with being surrounded by rowdy crazies. Curl up on the couch instead with plenty o' liquor and watch "Leprechaun" (1993), "Leprechaun 2" (1994), "Leprechaun 3" (1995), "Leprechaun 4: In Space" (1997), "Leprechaun in the Hood" (2000) and "Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood" (2003). We'd tell you to be sure to watch them in that order if it really mattered, but it really doesn't.

The following mini-biography marks a few significant dates in Davis' life, complete with fun facts that you may not have known about the esteemed English thespian.
February 3, 1970: Born to narcissist parents Warren and Harwick Davis in Epsom, Surrey, UK.
April 25, 1977: Sees "Star Wars" for the first time with his older brother, Meriweather. During the show, he allegedly points to the screen and whispers something to Meriweather that would seem to have amazingly prophesied his future: "One day, Meriweather, I'm going to play a murderous leprechaun in a film franchise that will launch the career of a promising young actress named Jennifer Aniston.
"I have not come to play with fruit. I just want me magic flute!"
So sayeth the ever-rhyming Irish demon played by Warwick Davis in "Leprechaun in the Hood" (2000) to the lusty cross-dressing Miss Fontaine (Lobo Sebastian). A little later, these two engage in a passionate romp under the sheets during which Miss Fontaine's cries of pain will be mistaken for gasps of orgasmic delight by at least one bewildered passer-by as the Leprechaun claims another victim.
It's astonishingly tasteless, crass and almost (almost) admirably brazen ... which kind of sums up the "Leprechaun" series in its entirety. And that's a pretty impressive entirety — there are six of the damn things in that pot of cinematic gold, after all.

Are you kidding me? It's been over 30 years since Joe Dante gave us The Howling? It's really been more than three decades since the release of this perfectly epic werewolf tale. In the years that have passed since the release of this film, Presidents have come and gone, wars have been fought, and the Red Sox even won the World Series… twice. But no one has made a better werewolf film than The Howling.
Others may have their favorites, but for my money the greatest werewolf film ever created is The Howling. And for that reason this Tip of the Scalpel goes to the best of the best of the films featuring the hairy lycanthropic beasties…

He recently took to his Twitter page to announce the casting, title, and release month: “The #swogglesecret that I’ve been hinting at all week is that in March 2013 I will be starring in Leprechaun:Origins by WWE Studios!!!”
The target release month is still quite a bit away, but we’ll keep an eye out for additional casting announcements over the coming months.
